From 1965: Before Joni was Joni Mitchell

"I was born to take the highway, I was born to chase a dream."

Seems to me, she even knew back then what was coming...

Wow. Thank you for that. Great to see pre-Mitchell Joni, and great to be reminded that my idols existed as artists even before they became stars.

Even now, 40 years after I first heard her sing, her voice gives me goosebumps and makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Thanks for that.

Joni has a special place in my pantheon. She often helps me get down the stairs in the morning. I forgot how dewy and genius she was !!
Thanks, DM for being so in tune...
